DealDash Celebrates St. Patrick’s Day 2024

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up on March 17th, 2024. Learn a little about its history, traditions, and fun activities you can do to celebrate.

St. Patrick’s Day originally commemorates St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. March 17th is believed to be the date of St. Patrick’s death. It has been observed as a religious holiday in Ireland for over a thousand years. The day was spent in quiet reflection and attending church services. This is far removed from today’s fun and, at times, rowdy celebrations. Today we will learn a little bit about St. Patty’s traditions as well as offer a few fun suggestions of ways to celebrate this year with DealDash.

From Irish to American Shores

As Irish immigrants crossed the Atlantic, they brought many things with them. This includes their traditions, beliefs, and customs, including the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. In the United States, the first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in New York City in 1762 (yes, really!). This was when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through the streets, reconnecting with their Irish roots and sharing their culture with us.

Over the years, St. Patrick’s Day in the USA has transformed into a celebration of Irish culture and heritage. Cities across the country host vibrant parades, lively music sessions, and dance performances, turning the day into a spectacle of green. From the Chicago River dyed a brilliant emerald hue to the packed pubs serving green beer and traditional Irish fare, the holiday serves as a testament to the strength and joy of the Irish-American community.
